Day 132: Went to the range for a change to work on my priority piece and see ball flight. Slipped into the bad habit of just hitting in the middle of the session, but then recovered. The balls were those awful floating type that were really beat down. Not much to gain on distance, but start direction helped.

Day 49 (Feb 23 2021) - Got to go to the course today to play.  Worked on course management, primarily where did I want to hit the approach shot into the green from on the 4's and 5's, in essence working from green back to the fairway.   Have to say it is much more comfortable hitting a shot you really like into the green as opposed to one at an awkward distance.

Day 422 - February 23, 2021

Today was a long day. Spent two hours downtown practicing. About 20 minutes of that was putting. Now, I don't hit a lot of balls, but there's a lot of work, a lot of rehearsals, etc. I started out with a 9I and things weren't good. I got them better by re-focusing on the just lifting of the arms, soft right arm, and then using the arms a bit more to start down instead of the body. Finished with some 6I that were pretty good.

Got the Live View Pro today, so I'm really looking forward to using that so I don't have to completely disrupt everything to look back in the mirror, AND so I can see how long my swing was right after I hit it, without having to trim or go back and record, etc.

Did COVID-19 day-5 drills, and then some 75% speed full swings with 7-iron working on recentering/flow. Also did COVID-19 day-3 left hand reach drill as a rehearsal before each full swing.

This is the camera that is similar to what Mirrorvision app does right? Will you be posting any comments/review on TST at some point? I was looking into it before I got the Mirrorvision app. Would be interested to hear your opinion on its value.

Day 3.  For 45 minutes tonight, I worked on putting on a real putting green.  One of the cups was about 5' from the edge of the green, so I was able to do an around-the-clock drill from 4', and it only took me 19 putts to do.  Either I got better in a hurry or it was an easy hole location.

Day 423 - February 24, 2021

Good long two+ hour session today. Focused on making the right sized backswing - not too small, not too long. Arms lift up in front of me, but not very far. I hit some 8I, then some 6I. I finished up with a 3I and really tried to feel that my setup was not getting too far forward.

Day 50 (Feb 24 2021)- Work on full swings with irons and driver(s) in the yard (temps in the 60's today) and hard foam balls (getting 70-80yds flight).   Working on maintaining steady grip pressure and flow through the downswing - I tend to get too rushed.  Noticed better ball flight by simply humming a steady note through the swing - to resist the grunt reflex.  Made me think of my friend who is always humming "Roxanne" by the Police when he plays.

    • Played another rusty 18 holes yesterday, but made some good shots along the way.  The best one was on a 370 yard par 4, where I missed the fairway left and dumped the approach in a pond short left of the green. Took a drop and had 85 yards into the wind left to the pin over the same pond, landed it directly in the cup and broke both the cup and the Covid-filler put into it. The hole spat it back out to a 5 inch tap-in bogey, but it was still pretty amazing shot. Wonder if it would've stayed in without the covid-filler in the hole.  
    • A couple of the changes I made in the last year took weeks/months to stick. I know I’ve finally changed the picture when I film some swings that feel crappy, but when I look at the video, the change is still there. We just have to prepare our mindset to know it’s going to take time and effort.  
    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
